  • Monochromatic and color ambient light sensors
  • Image sensors
  • Fingerprint sensors
  • Temperature sensors
  • Sensors for measuring three-dimensional non-contact gestures (“air gestures”)
  • Pressure sensors
  • Sensors for detecting position, orientation, and/or motion
  • Health sensors
  • Radio-frequency sensors
  • Depth sensors
  • Humidity sensors
  • Moisture sensors
  • Gaze tracking sensors
  • Three Dimensional Sensors

To give some examples!

Whenever consolidated into a solitary piece of clothing, these would make an extremely convincing iPhone substitution, at the same time, similarly, singular sensors could likewise be utilized in Apple Watch groups for more specialized use cases. It’s consistently worth recalling that this is only a patent documenting, so it’s impossible of knowing when, or if, this will come around.
